What is Medical Negligence?

Everyone knows that medical treatment can sometimes go wrong. Medicine is an imprecise science and sometimes things happen during the course of medical treatment that leave a patient with injuries or problems that had not been expected. Most of the time, these are unfortunate, but recognised complications of the treatment being received, but sometimes, injuries or problems occur because someone has made a mistake that should never have happened.

Doctors, Dentists, Nurses, Paramedics and other healthcare professionals owe all of their patients a duty of care and if they breach this duty, this is known as Medical, or Clinical Negligence and the injured patient has a right to make a claim.
